I have never read a Carla Neggers book I didn't like...honest! I love her books. When the story line ends you get that "turn the last page to see if that's REALLY the end of the book" reaction....I will not put any spoilers here. But If you are looking for a good mystery/suspense, strong characters that will keep you wanting more>>> Carla Neggers is the author you want to be reading. 'Nuff said.

I really enjoyed this book. Gabrielle gets followed by two men and she needs to figure out why?

I love romance books but even more when it has some suspense. . I enjoyed the story since it wasn't a typical romance story. I enjoyed the characters in the book. And the chemistry between Gabriella Starr and Cam Yeager was intense :).

Good book. I have read better. To much independence, not enough working together by Cam and Gabrallia. As with a lot of Carla Neggers books, this one is thin on plot and the characters motivations and tough to get into. Cam leaves the police force after getting his law degree. His partner also leaves and take a job as private security. Pete is following Gabrilla and Cam hooks up with her.
This is one of my all time favorite books and I read it about twice a year. I've worn out a couple of paperback copies and now have it in e-book. The two main characters are just the best. They are so different and shoot sparks off each other right from the start and all the way through to the end.
